ComunicadoresUSA and the National Hispanic Prayer Breakfast to Present ‘The State Of Hispanics in the Media’

ComunicadoresUSA logoAs hundreds of Hispanic Christian leaders gather in the nation's capital next week, a special roundtable event will be held Wednesday, June 19, on "The State of Hispanics in the Media."

Presented by ComunicadoresUSA and the National Hispanic Prayer Breakfast, the roundtable will feature WUSA9 Reporter Ken Molestina; NBC4 Reporter and Anchor Erika Gonzalez; Carolyn Brown, Assistant Professor of Journalism at American University; and Michele Salcedo, Washington Desk Editor at The Associated Press.

The focus of the roundtable will be on the areas for growth, concern, and celebration when it comes to Hispanics in the media. There will also be lots of opportunities for Q&A.

"We celebrate the fact that more Hispanics are news reporters and anchors, and media producers and executives,” commented Stan Jeter, ComunicadoresUSA’s President and a member of the NRB Board of Directors. “It's a healthy trend, especially as they represent the biblical, pro-family values of the Latin culture."

Attendance for the panel is free but attendees are also encouraged to register for the National Hispanic Prayer Breakfast and Conference, June 18-20, at www.esperanza.us/groupform, and enter the Group Code as Jeter2013 when they sign up, so they will be identified with ComunicadoresUSA.

The hour-long roundtable is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, June 19, in the Ohio Room of the Capital Hilton Hotel in Washington.

To RSVP, e-mail stanjeter@comunicadoresusa.org.
